The Ozaukee High School boys’ basketball team dropped a 64-61 Big East Conference game at Kohler Monday night.

“We will learn and grow from the loss,” coach Bob Domach said.

“There are no moral victories, but I am very happy with how the kids competed and fought for a victory.”

The game was tight throughout, with Kohler holding a one-point edge at halftime, 29-28.

Brent Hoffmann led the Warriors with 17 points. Noah Miller added 14.

Carter Gebler scored 20 for Kohler.

Last Friday, a game-high 27 points from sophomore Noah Miller propelled the Warriors to a 65-57 Big East win at Sheboygan Christian.

Senior Mitch Weyker scored 19, and Logan Bell had a season-high six points.

The Warriors climbed to .500 at 6-6 in the league. The Eagles slipped to 1-11.

Despite the win, Domach said there was plenty that didn’t go right for the Warriors.

“We didn’t play great defense. We allowed too many easy baskets,” he said.

Ozaukee had trouble on offense as well.

“They played zone the entire game, and we had trouble getting into any type of flow in the first half,” Domach stated.

The Warriors trailed by two, 30-28, at the break, but then picked up their play.

“We played much better offensively in the second half,” Domach said.

Michael Modahl led Christian with 24 points.

The No. 8-seeded Warriors play at No. 1-seeded Hilbert on Friday in the Big East Tournament and against either No. 4-seeded Kohler or No. 5-seeded Hilbert on Tuesday, Feb. 12.

CG-Belgium drops two in different fashions

Cedar Grove-Belgium lost on Monday, 63-49, at Kiel, after a heartbreaker, 57-56, at Hilbert last Friday.

“They shot well from the field, 11-for-24 from two-point range,” coach Josh Ketterhagen said of Monday’s game. “We only shot 33%.”

Ethan Wonser scored 13 points. Jeffrey Emperley scored 10. Matthew Voskuil scored eight and Max Ford had seven.

Starting guard Michael Navis missed the game with concussion-like symptoms.

Aaron Winkel scored 19 to lead Kiel.

At Hilbert, the Rockets couldn’t get a shot off in the final seconds.

Husky Karson Krueger hit a three-pointer from the corner with about 10 seconds left for the lead. The Rockets got the ball up court and were fouled with 2.5 seconds left. A Husky tipped the inbounds pass and the ball bounced out of bounds as time expired.

“That was a bummer. Just ran out of time, I guess,” Ketterhagen said. “The hustle was good by everybody.”

Wonser scored 12, and Navis, Voskuil and Ford each had 10.

Adam Didrich scored 19 for Hilbert, and Krueger and Grant Propson each had 17.

The Rockets, 4-8 in the Big East and 7-10 overall, play Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah (0-12) on Thursday and open the Big East Tournament at Random Lake (2-11) on Friday.
